Lake Tahoe Fireworks Show to be Handled by Nevada Agency

Posted: Updated:
STATELINE, Nev. (AP) -- Tourism officials at Lake Tahoe say that obtaining Nevada-based sponsorship for their annual Fourth of July and Labor Day fireworks shows will help free them from California regulators after settling a lawsuit over pollution.
 
Leaders of the Lake Tahoe Visitors Authority say they've turned over their long-term sponsorship of the show to the Tahoe Douglas Visitors Authority on Nevada's east shore.
 
Tourism officials say the change means primary regulation of the fireworks falls to Nevada officials.

The shows feature spectacular, boat-launched displays and draw tens of thousands of people annually.
 
Authority Director Carol Chaplin told the Douglas County Board of Commissioners this week that Nevada is a much friendlier place to shoot fireworks.
